The Museum of The Little Prince, Hakone-machi

3.7
#2 of 16 in Parks in Hakone-machi
Step into scenes from one of the world's most read and best loved children's books at The Museum of The Little Prince, a museum and park dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic. Stroll around the small village, designed to look like the illustrations of France pored over endlessly by readers of "The Little Prince." Learn about the author's childhood, and the inspirations which went into the magical tale, as you go through the museum, seeing a recreation of his childhood bedroom and the room in which he wrote the famous story. Rest up in the onsite cafe, serving an array of French dishes with a distinctly Japanese twist. The Museum of The Little Prince is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hakone-machi Edition.

  • It is unbearable to the Prince having fans of the stars Museum. First thing in the morning on a weekday is I went a whole Apple chatter and good location. When Park went on travelling with a baby and rented a stroller at the entrance, but employees who have children here and brought blankets. May be crowded during the week from consideration.

  • I have read the Little Prince and I love them, that's why I set aside a little time to visit this museum. The location can be reached using the Hakone Tozan Bus, but since I was using the Hakone Free ...  more »
  • It is a good Museum. 1,600 Yen is quite expensive in feel. I think, however, facilities, appearance, and contents are very dark. Saint Exupery was born in the world of the little Prince, it forms the Earl of home, by focusing on the little Prince's life and works has explained in numerous documents, photographs, reproduce the exhibits. Exhibition of photos taken, space, aesthetics, instant attractions and many are made, nicely arranged in. Souvenir of the last type is rich. In the world's first Museum of Saint Exupery in carried messages from family representative. Is wondering why in what was very good.

  • A place where the builder tried to reproduce all characters, scenario and things. It is a good place to explore with kids, but I expect more...perhaps the Little Prince is unique to me and none can reproduce...
  • Great Museum, a lot of history about the book and how it was created.
  • This museum is so fantastic! I love Le Petit Prince so this museum taught me more about the author and I got some great photo opportunities. I definitely suggest going here! I went to Hakone just to see this museum and it was worth the day trip!
  • Cute little museum with great architecture that makes you feel like you're in France!
  • Doesn't look like a shabby museum but unless you understand Japanese, it will be a waste of time

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
